I stopped for one night in May 2015, on my way through on business. Really welcoming house, I got in a little later than I hoped but it was no problem. Really nice big room as clean as a whistle. Perfect location for a wander and to top it off a wonderful breakfast with local produce. Thanks very much! I'll...

We have just enjoyed another of our many visits to Willance house, which is more like a home than a house. Returning visits are always a good testimony, and we met another couple who had also been there many times. There is the welcoming tea with Colin's home-made lemon sponge, the lovely comfortable clean and warm rooms, the delicious breakfasts,...
